Most members have stopped going there, now going to another field about 25 miles away (a bit far for me).

I can fly electric helos and park fliers less than a block from my house, and can fly nitro helos, 25 size electrics, control line, etc. at a large school about a five minute walk (I throw my stuff in a wagon).

I own four acres that borders state game land and can fly whatever I want out there. It's about 40 minutes one way - but I also have a stream through my property and trout!
Yup, very similar. Only real difference is that the club I fly at is nowhere near an airport or anything for that matter, so no complaints.

I did almost get shot on 2 different occasions though!!! Idiot hunter at hunting camp apparently shooting our direction. Once when my son was with me and once when I was by myself pulling the mower out of the shed. Both times (different days) I literally heard a bullet wiz by my head!! I may have broken the record for F bombs shouted at someone at one time!! lol. It was not pretty! That sound might be cool when watching "Saving Private Ryan" in 5.1, but I can assure you it is very not cool in real life!!! lol.
